I had surgery on one finger for Dupurytrens Contracture. That's is a arthritic disease where the cords in the palm to the fingers thicken and pulls the fingers into a fist.

After the first surgery on one finger it flared up all the other fingers and they are curved inward deformed and frozen.

Then a dr. That treats DC with needle aponeurectomy. This is where the hand is injected to block pain and a needle is used to break up the thickened tendon...

Hashimoto's & AutoImmune Disorder

Posted 06-27-2012 07:28 AM by Apache Kristy
